Its a blast. There are a ton if you can find them here in NC. I have about 10 decoys, a flapper, and an electronic caller. Its definatly fun if you get into them. Just ride around in the morning and look for fields with crows in them, usually at least 10 or so and ask the landowner if you can shoot them, they usually let you. Get out there before light and blast them or just set up anytime but the morning is the best. Swamps have provided the best results for me though. Good luck :thumbsup:

Can't wait for them to come back our way so I can blast some. There is some good advice a while back on techniques, plus there is a forum called "Crow Busters" that you could check out. Killing crows is a great way to help the duck population. :thumbsup:

There are a few good sites that can teach you everything you need to know.
It's really a lot of fun. Got back into it last year for the first time in almost 20 years.
i plan to wear the southern population a new one.

Try and wound one. you'll never have heard such a ruckous and they others will be all over you.
"If you can't have fun doing it, it ain't worth doing." my motto

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.

get like six crow decoys and an owl decoy. put the owl on a post in a feild with like 3 decoys around it. then hang 3 in a nearby tree. then just call your heart out, and if you have an owl hooter use that too. they will be swarming you in no time if there are any within calling range.

For bait, just throw out an empty McDonalds bag. They`ll come flying in :thumbsup:

we hunt them about the same as VTduckman w/ the few clip on dekes andthe owl decoy. when they wise up to that we move a little bit and use a rabbit hide that we skin during rabbit season and put ketchup on it and place it in the feilds edge or on a road way. there smart SOB's so camo and minimal movement.
